Checking Back In.

Hello there fellas - not that I'm all that important, but 1 or 2 of you PM'd me wondering if I was okay.  In the infamous words of George Costanza "I'm back, baby"

thanks fellas - really appreciate it - I've had some dark days most of this year, but things are starting to get better - light at the end of the tunnel so to speak.  I've missed the community and brewing quite a bit.  Back in the saddle of brewing - in the past 2 months I brewed some of my house faves: Mako IPA, Belgian Wit, Dortmunder Gold, and my 2012 Oktoberfest is in the conical now. 

Just have to build the stand for my new electric brew system and then hopefully I'll be popping the cherry on the new system on the next brewday, if not the one following.

Major - I guess I still owe you beer?  I thought the Jags/Titans split last year, but I don't mind - I'm bottling  a six pack this weekend of some IPA for my brother, so I'll put a few together.
